Lunchbox Love Mom Panel


The mission behind Lunchbox Love® serves a huge purpose that goes far beyond the lunchbox. It’s the idea of communicating to our kids that we love, respect, and honor them. This is the kind of daily reminder that is the perfect way to bring positive messaging into our children’s lives and those we love, especially when we cannot be there. Because a healthy lunch feeds the soul as much as the stomach.

Lunchbox Love® partnered with professional and passionate women that will engage the Lunchbox Love® community to help market the brand. We are starting this exciting conversation with the very people who know children best – moms!
